Lawrence Arms

An Evening Of Extraordinary Circumstance

Released on June 5, 2012


An Evening of Extraordinary Circumstance is a DVD that captures just what the title implies. Back in October of 2009, The Lawrence Arms commemorated their 10th anniversary by playing an epic 2 hour show to a sold out audience at The Metro, in their hometown of Chicago. Given TLA’s status as the reigning kings of Midwest punk rock, not to mention the legend of their live shows, you can bet your britches that the anticipation and hype surrounding the event were enormous. Well, long story short, the guys triumphantly obliterated all expectations with a 33 song set list that featured all the hits, as well as a few songs that they’d never performed live before. Naturally, all of this rock was peppered with Brendan’s world famous on-stage banter (which is a show in itself), and topped off with god damn matching outfits!!! It was really something to behold. Luckily, for all those not fortunate enough to attend this mythical event, the entire show was filmed and can now be relived through this DVD. This footage isn’t just some stationary shot from someone’s iPhone either. There were 6 different professional cameramen running around the joint capturing every conceivable angle. Every bit of the audio was mixed by Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, Smoking Popes) too, so you know the quality on this thing is choice. Of course, the DVD features plenty of bonus material too, including an equally hilarious and informative band commentary that spans the entire length of the show, footage and interviews with fans, and 5 music videos. Oh, and for those good at hunting “Easter eggs”, there is footage of The Lawrence Arms entire first show(!!!) on there too. Basically, the An Evening of Extraordinary Circumstance DVD is a TLA fan’s wet dream. Yep, we said it.

I was at this show. I was completely excited for this show for 3 months. So I am a little biased here. But this DVD really is great. The sound production is done very well and the camera work flows nicely with the music. Too bad it took 3 years to make. The Lawrence Arms performance itself is great. If you are used to Brendan falling on his face or having "technical" difficulties you will be in for a surprise. They plow through 35 or so songs without much rambling in between songs. The variety of songs is set-up well. However, I don't think they stuck to the e-mails votes as much as they said they would. The commentary is pretty good too if you are a big Larry Arms fan. 5 music videos are included as well. EASTER EGG: When Brendan mentions how the show is better than their first one in "Wisconsin" hit enter (on computer) or select (on remote) and it will start to play the very first ever Lawrence Arms show filmed somewhere in Wisconsin. Overall, an awesome live DVD from a Midwest punk cornerstone.

Lawrence Arms are hands down one of my favorite punk bands of all time. To be honest, live dvd's can bore me, especially when you've seen the band 150 times in person. I was hoping there was going to be a bit of a documentary with this as well but there is not. The show is good, they cover all the bases and sound good as well. I personally just wish they'd get off their asses and make a new album. If you're a die-hard LA fan or have never seen them live then this is something you'll probably enjoy.
